A senior manager in charge of sustainability, Emmanuel Baidoo explained that “when we invest in education, it will definitely translate into developing the Human Resource capability that we need as a country to pursue the developmental agenda that we seek to push as a country.”

Mr Emmanuel Baidoo, however, revealed, “the company’s 10-year development plan which is yet to be outdoored will contribute to the government’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Technical  Vocational Education Training (TVET) education policy”.

The headmaster of the Obuasi Senior High and Technical School lauded the company for the gesture.

Ernest Wiafe described the intervention as timely. 

“Although the school auditorium was completed in 2017 it had no furniture.”

The donation has come at a time when the school is expecting about 1,800 first-year students which will put a lot of pressure on the existing furniture of the school.

“We’re grateful for the gesture,” he said.
